The wave glider
Transcript of The wave glider
5599 San Felipe St.
Houston, TX. 77056
A deep, narrow hole made in the ground, especially to locate water or oil.
Mag Wave Glider
Provides an excellent understanding of Earth's magnetic field.
Driving in bad weather conditions could be one of the most dangerous things someone could encounter on the road.
During bad weather the roads get slippery, whether it's ice, sleet. snow or rain.
So what can we do to stay safe?
Stay off the roads during bad weather.
Keep a distance
No sudden moves (accelerator, brakes, steering wheel)
A structure with equipment for drilling and servicing an oil well.
What are the components of a rig?
The components of a rig consists of different parts.
Conducts the drilling fluid from the mud pump and standpipe to the swivel and kelly.
A large winch that spools off or takes in the drilling line and raises/lowers the drill stem and bit.
Freely moving section of a block and tackle that contains a set of pulleys or sleaves through which the drill line (wire rope) is threaded.
The turntable turns the kelly and the kelly turns the drill pipe. When the drill pipe rotates, the drill bit rotates and cuts the rock.
The kelly is used to transmit rotary motion from the rotary table.

Reduce risk and cost, increase accuracy, drill faster and avoid sidetracks.
What's the job of the MAG Wave Glider?
Measures the electromagnetic field, to do live horizontal borehole drilling to help get precise and accurate reading on where the oil and gas is located at.
A crew on an oil rig consists of eight jobs where people are needed:
Roustabout: work in no specific job. On the oil field they maintain all things (oil well set-up/ maintain saltwater disposal pumps).
Roughnecks: empower exploration and development activity like cleaning equipment and also do manual labor around the rig.
Floor hands: handle all the odd jobs on the rig like cleaning equipment and also help do manual labor around the rig.
Lead tong operators: help guide and tighten the pipe line, development drilling, directional drilling, etc.
Motormen: Motor men are engineers on the job that operate the power system and the motor for the bit.
Derrickmen: Guides the pipeline into the well and reports to the driller.
Assistant drillers: supervises the work done on the drill floor and all other work in connection with the drilling operations.
The drillers: in charge of the crew, and running the rig itself.
The placement of the bore hole
It is important to know where the bore hole will be placed to ensure you are in the productive regions of the reservoir and not reaching an aquifer.
Geomagnetic Referencing Service.
Detects the Earth's gravitational magnetic fields.
Avoids collisions with wellbores nearby.
Power consumption is 2W.
Sensors have high sensitivity.
Inshore geophysical survey
Magnetic mapping of harbours
Target detection in lakes, rivers and estuaries
Fabian van der Werth
Aware of collision!
This is where you need to know where you are drilling which is where GRS comes to play.
Vertical Borehole Placement
Types of wave gliders
Seep : To monitor and protect the marine environment and offshore habitats.
They measure, process, communicate and assess water conditions and ecological health.
Gateway wave glider.
Mag: Developed for offshore oil exploration.
To gather, process, communicate data on seismic, magnetic, and other geophysical features.
Gateway: Enable integrated communications from the seafloor to the ocean surface, to satellites in space.
Control and exchange data with sub sea equipment, vehicles and sensors.
METOC: To process, measure and communicate in "on-site" weather and ocean conditions to improve the forecasting and provide design data and safety monitoring for offshore installations.
Security: To help governments protect their coasts from illegal drugs, fish poaching, and human trafficking.
Provides continuous surveillance, and detection for confirmation.
